It was time to break out the ol' slip n slide... I remember when I first bought it in Bismarck when the boys were still pretty little. They had no idea what they were supposed to do with it and since I wasn't about to show them myself I told them to go and ask the 3 older boys that lived next door to us to come out and demonstrate. My boys were still aprehensive after that and for several years after. But this year they all GOT it! They ended up having a really fun afternoon.
